Melissa and her husband operated a graphics design business in south Texas when circumstances brought them to San Angelo. They brought their business with them, locating it on the west side of San Angelo.

Like any new business or established business in a new location, Melissa found her business struggling.

Not wanting to give up, she called the Angelo State University – Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for assistance and met with Cindy Hartin in Melissa’s place of business.

At Cindy’s suggestions, Melissa met with the rest of the SBDC team for a marketing based brainstorming session where a number of ideas were tossed out. Additionally, Melissa met with Advisor Jessica Lambert for some assistance on her business Facebook page and website. Cindy continued to work with Melissa assisting her in becoming HUB certified so that she could do business with the government. In the process, Melissa found an affordable downtown location that is easier for her clients to find her.

Of her assistance from the SBDC, Melissa says “it showed me my weak points and how to strengthen them and gave me new avenues to try to fund my expansion – showed me how to be a CCR member and a HUB business.”
